It’s my first one back in San Antonio so the Hoch and I are going to celebrate with some beers, BBQ, and enjoying this fine sunny day here in Texas (it finally stopped raining!). 🙂 It is crazy to think that this time last month, I was in Uruguay. The time really flew by so quickly. This … Continue reading Buenos Aires + Uruguay: Colonia & Montevideo

Hi guys! So today I will start to share some of my Peru travels. 😊 For this post, I’ll start with Lima, Peru. I only spent two full days there, which I think was sufficient time to see the city. I had an early flight from Santiago (5am which meant I needed to be at the airport by 3am, ouch!) and arrived around 9am. I … Continue reading Lima, Peru

Hi everyone! So I am at the end of my semester here and can’t believe how fast the time has flown. It has been fun and challenging, but I am ready for it to be over so that I can start my SA travels!

I thought for this post, … Continue reading Chile Update!
